So, the mileage is creeping up there. Yay.
Definitely a better showing than last month’s 40.39, I feel like actual progress has been made. Which is good because I signed up for the New York marathon lottery, which means that sometime in July I will find out if I can run in the New York Marathon which means that I will now have to start training for a marathon…because it takes all of summer and all of fall to prepare for that shit. So Friday nights out are off the table once again starting with tonight, have a 9-miler to hit in the morning. Joy.
I also still need that back-up marathon to enter now in case I don’t get into NY. Am thinking Marine Corps*, basically because I can sell my number later if need be. Anyone got any better ideas?
In other news, remember when I was complaining about Alan Schwartz of Baseball Today? Well, I got him fired. I am probably lying about that, but he really is no longer the host of the show and I like to believe that I can wield that kind of power. In his place they put in Peter Pascarelli, who took over the host position this past Tuesday. Now, I’ll give him a pass for a while, seeing as he is new, but he really needs to learn not to “poof” his “p”s and “b”s on the mic. Tre annoying! Also, Schwartz was freakin’ Chris Rock compared to Pascarelli who comes across like a CPA or a lawyer trying to make jokes, they just fall flat and sound ridiculously nerdy. Let’s hope he finds a groove and relaxes a little, baseball is a long season.
*Please have better ideas, Marine Corps registration is closed now too. Harumph. I guess I can try ot pick up a bib number later in the summer if I don’t get into NY – MCM is one of the few races that does legal bib switches. Guess I need to start thinking about smaller races…
